Behavioral health conditions can be a critical issue facing employers, in terms of both the cost and the number of employees who are undiagnosed and untreated. This session shines a spotlight on root causes for undiagnosed and untreated behavioral health conditions among employer-insured adults, exploring associated disparities and proposing practical solutions to improve access and treatment. Attendees will hear new research from a nationally drawn contemporary sample of adults with employer-sponsored health insurance and active behavioral health symptoms, characterizing differences in treatment patterns and barriers to behavioral health care by age, sex, and medical comorbidity. Acushnet Company's behavioral health promotion journey includes practical strategies to address known barriers and to work toward parity in behavioral health care access for employees located at headquarters, in factories, and overseas. "Real world" results and case studies will illustrate the impact these solutions have had on behavioral health care utilization and outcomes. The session will share data to describe the additive impact of technology-enabled behavioral health care solutions on parity efforts across diverse employees and employment sectors.
